Ben Wright (para-powerlifting) is a two-time Commonwealth Games representative making his debut at the Glasgow 2014 Games. Hailing from the Perth suburb of Viveash, Wright’s preparation ahead of the Gold Coast 2018 Games was interrupted when he suffered a seizure less than 10 weeks before competition, which resulted in compression fractures in four of his vertebrae. But Wright was thrilled with his sixth placing in the men’s heavyweight division and thrilled at the prospect of what he might be able to do in the future when fully fit. A three-time Australian champion, Wright is an Oceanian record holder in two weight classes (80kg and 88kg) and has set his sights on qualifying for the Tokyo Paralympics.
